Drive-In Sin is a collection of twenty-five poems. The poems include rhyming couplets, tercets, and quatrains, loosely-defined sonnets, triolets, and free verse. Most include a backbone of iambs, giving a sense of rhythm and continuity to the grouping. The subject matter is most often Southern, but vacillates between power-stripped resignation and brutal invective. A search for female empowerment often dictates the tone.
